Tase and Worship

Watch this news story video…

My initial response is something like, “Yes!!! Tase the tambourineist! Can I get some of that action in my church?”

But then I start to think about the woman and what may have been going on in her mind. Why did she do the things that she did? Did the officer really have to go to this far? There must be more to the story.

Worship leader is one of the hats that I wear and I get as frustrated with the tambourine as the next guy. Especially the over-zealous tambourine player. But what is the right way to deal with it? We don’t want to crush the Spirit. We don’t want to sensor people freedom of worship, but we do want to shut down distractions.

What do you do to keep distractions under control in your church? In your youth group? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
